Question about 1996 Chevrolet Corsica

1 Answer

Are the front wheels supposed to turn in opposite directions?

So..hubby has the car up on jack stands and noticed that with the car in both neutral and you turn one wheel by hand in one direction the other wheel goes in the opposite direction. Is it supposed to do that?

    4wheel drive wont engage


    First, start checking the fuses an there is also an electrial activaced switch at the transmission or transfer case that may be bad.

    95-96
    Your control knob should say 2wd, 4auto, 4low.

    First, we need to narrow it down to a transfer case issue, or a front axle issue.
    Step 1) Jack up the front end and place it securely on jack stands.
    Step 2) Verify that the front driveshaft turns by hand. When turning the front driveshaft by hand, the front wheels may or may not turn. Do not be alarmed if they don't turn. This is normal for your vehicle.
    Step 3) Start the vehicle and let it idle. Place your foot firmly on the brakes, place the transmission in NEUTRAL, engage 4low, then place the vehicle back in park. DO NOT ENGAGE ANY GEAR!! The lurch as the transmission engages could cause the vehicle to lurch and potentially fall off the jack stands.**If you can turn the front driveshaft, the transfer case is not locking. This could be due to a mechanical issue with the transfer case itself, or an electrical gremlin with the control system. Start a new thread with the results of your checks, and we'll go from there.
    **If the front driveshaft does not turn, the transfer case is locking properly and we need to continue searching.
    Step 4) With the front wheels in the air, engine idling in PARK, spin one front wheel. The other wheel should spin the opposite direction. If both wheels spin in opposite directions, then the front axle *should* be properly engaged. Take it for a test drive (after safely lowering it to the ground, of course). If the front wheels do not spin in opposite directions, there is a problem with the front axle. This could be due to a mechanical problem with the diff, or a failure of the center axle disconnect to engage the passenger side axle shaft. Start a new thread with the results of your checks, and we'll go from there.

    Troubleshooting the CAD on a 95-96 is a bit more involved than I want to get into here, and the problems can vary widely. This'll get you started.


    97-01 4-door and 96-00 Sports
    Your control knob should say 4auto, 4high, 4low.
    First, we need to narrow it down to a transfer case issue, or a front axle issue.

    Step 1) Jack up the front end and place it securely on jack stands.

    Step 2) Verify that the front driveshaft turns by hand. When turning the front driveshaft by hand, the front wheels should turn. (If only one turns, don't be alarmed. One wheel sometimes has more resistance in the brakes, bearings, or CV joints. This is normal)
    Step 3) Start the vehicle and let it idle in PARK. Engage 4high. DO NOT PUT THE VEHICLE IN GEAR!!! Crawl underneath and see if you can turn the front driveshaft.
    **If you can turn the front driveshaft, the transfer case is not locking. This could be due to a mechanical issue with the transfer case itself, or an electrical gremlin with the control system. Start a new thread with the results of your checks, and we'll go from there.

    '01-'03 Sport and '01-'05 Sport Trac
    Your control knob should say 2wd, 4high, 4low

    The transfer case in these trucks functions essentially like the 1st-gens' 13-54 t-case. (i.e. it uses a lockup collar engaged by the transfer case shift motor) The troubleshooting procedure is very similar, but you don't need to worry about hubs or center-axle disconnects engaging.

    Step 1) Jack up the front end and place it securely on jack stands.
    Step 2) Verify that the front driveshaft turns by hand. When turning the front driveshaft by hand, the front wheels should turn. (If only one turns, don't be alarmed. One wheel sometimes has more resistance in the brakes, bearings, or CV joints. This is normal)
    Step 3) Start the vehicle and let it idle in PARK. Engage 4high. DO NOT PUT THE VEHICLE IN GEAR!!! Crawl underneath and see if you can turn the front driveshaft.
    **If you can turn the front driveshaft, the transfer case is not locking. The shift motor could be falsely reading an incorrect t-case position, or it could be a mechanical issue with the case itself. Start a new thread with the results of your checks, and we'll go from there.
    **If the front driveshaft does not turn, the transfer case is locking properly and we need to continue searching.
    Step 4) With the front wheels in the air, engine idling in PARK, spin one front wheel. The other wheel should spin the opposite direction. If it does, the system should be properly engaged. Safely lower the vehicle to the ground and take it for a test drive. If the wheels do NOT spin in opposite directions, there is a problem with the front differential or axle. Start a new thread with the results of your checks, and we'll go from there.

    How do I align the steering after I replace the steering gear box so I have equal rotations on the steering wheel from left to right on a 1992 chevy astro van?


    with the front of the vehicle raised in the air (with jack stands underneath), turn your steering wheel lock to lock, counting how many times the steering wheel does one complete rotation..........halve this number and rotate the steering wheel the opposite way...this will be the approximate middle of the steering rack movement

    One important ppoint to note that not all items are built exactly, so you will require a wheel alignment after any change in steering or suspension components to be sure that everything is running true and correct

    1: check the tension of your belts, that is what the squeal sounds like.

    2: yes. when the front wheels are off the ground and turned, they will rotate opposite directions. this is normal for a non posi - trac car.

    when you take the rear cover off of the differential housing you will see a whole bunch of small clutches between the spider gears and the ring gear housing, you will see that the axles go right through them. If it is not a limited slip it will not have these clutches

    You probably blew your diff, take out the drain plug and see if you have any metal shavings, if not throw your car in neutral, jack the back end up and turn one of the wheels depending on your type of diff the other should turn in the opposite direction. If not you need to replace it.
